Kenwood’s Cooking Chef Mixer Takes The Stove Out Of The Equation

By Andrew Liszewski

The only thing that stops me from cooking more is sheer laziness, but this new contraption from Kenwood doesn’t give me much of an excuse any more. It looks like your standard mixer, with a large 6.7L bowl capacity and 8 mixing speeds, but it also features an 1100W induction heating system that allows you to cook food directly in the mixing bowl.

Temperatures can be set between 20°C to 140°C for warming or actual cooking, and there’s even a steam basket attachment allowing you to prepare an entire meal without ever turning on the stove. The only downside is that once again convenience doesn’t come cheap, so you can expect to pay around $1,600+ for the Cooking Chef.

    Cool. I could see how this could be a real time saver for some things.

  • EspritOuvert

    But what can you possibly cook at 140°C (aka 284°F)? I've rarely used my oven at a temperature lower than 350°F

  • mcman

    This stuff sounds great until you see the price. Talk about confusing kids with “hot” stuff.

  • baggyklown

    i can't see any use for this. the only things i ever mix can't be cooked until they're mixed

  • Kouroth

    I agree with the others. I'm betting its for gravy or some other liquid that needs to be heated while you mix it.

  • dubzilla

    maybe a bowl shaped cake. This just confuses me.

  • joeythenifty

    So for 1600 smackers I can make some gravy and steam some food above it? Is this high living?

    For 1600 bucks it better cook, serve, clear the table, wash the dishes and satisfy me in bed.

    I love gadgets. And I especially love kitchen gadgets. And this is one for my “Super-Expensive-Slightly-Impractical-Gadgets-I-Will-Never-Own” list.

    Talk about a Slow Cooker.. And there is absolutely no use for this over priced gravy warmer.

  • iamsodamnclever

    This is actually quite perfect for making high end, very delicate desserts, like making your own caramel or heating milk without scorching or making your own chocolate. I actually had the same idea for this many months ago. I'm glad this is out, though the price is a bit, and the design needs adjusting. But a brilliant idea, just not worth the price for the moment, but it will come down eventually.

    yeah. this is shit. i cook all the time. cooking at less then 300 degrees doesnt exist for the majority of basic cooking.
